Sleep Training Tips from Rosie Pope

When I chatted with Pregnant in Heels starRosie Pope, I had to ask her the number one question on every new parent's mind: How do I get my baby to sleep well? While there's no one surefire solution, the maternity mogul did have some helpful suggestions that have worked in her own life and for her clients. Considering first-time parents Kim Kardashianand Kanye West are entering into that early phase of sleepless nights with a newborn, there's no better time to share Rosie's wise words with the world. Consider it a baby gift, Kimye!

"Parents have to understand is you can’t even begin to sleep train, even if you want to, until the baby is at least four months old and 14 pounds," explains Rosie. "If they’re prematurely born you have to factor that in, so that’s the first thing. The second is you can’t sleep train until your baby is eating enough food during the day, and people often don’t realize because they’ve been feeding during the night that they’re not getting all of their calories during the day. You have to make that transition so they’re getting all of their food in the day hours."

Do you agree with her advice?
